If you’re reading this you’ve probably read any number of motor cycle magazines, packed with readers’ letters, new product pages, bike launches, technical advice features, show reports and the like. If you’d care to take a look at 1902 you’ll find the first letter to be published in a bike mag (you’ll recognise the writer’s name). You’ll also find handy tips (sound advice to keep your hands off the engine and use fresh petrol); new products (starting with a ‘catalytic plug’); a new model (from Precision) and a show report (from Crystal Palace). There’s also a series of delightful yarns along the lines of “aren’t these new-fangled motor bicycles BRILLIANT!’. Which, you’ll agree, they are.
